Sandy Cove Ministries is an all-inclusive, year-round Christian retreat center located on the headwaters of the Chesapeake Bay in North East, Maryland.
Since 1946, people have been coming to Sandy Cove with many different needs and hopes in anticipation of a special time away with God and others and find what they are looking for here.
In addition to hosting hundreds of church groups each year, Sandy Cove provides programs for families, adults, and children. We have two locations: Sandy Cove Ministries (North East, Maryland), and Camp Sandy Cove (High View, West Virginia).
Sandy Cove is a non-denominational, not-for-profit organization governed by biblical principles.
During the Great Depression of the 1930s, God provided an unusual opportunity for Dr. George Palmer, pastor of Haddon Heights Baptist Church in Haddon Heights, NJ, to host one of the earliest Christian radio broadcasts. During this time when businesses, banks, and government were failing, the daily Morning Cheer broadcast brought good news and hope. Dr. George Palmer's biblical teaching stressed God's omniscience and control, and the show's theme song reminded all that “Jesus Never Fails.”
